A first glimpse of the wine reveals a pale, straw color, quite typical for a sophisticated Chardonnay. The first
nose brings a delicate blend of green apple, white peach, and acacia flower, with a surprising addition of the
autumn fruits pear and quince. After a swirl, the second nose reveals a more mineral note of crushed stones, the
mark of an exceptional Chardonnay. The palate is round and velvety with a prolonged, flavorful finish of honey

is gentle on the fruit during crush and prevents any bitter note in the finish. If allowed to age, this wine
promises to further increase in minerality and develop a luscious, butterscotch character.
